As young girls we dream big dreams.  We dream of beautiful weddings.  We dream of being mommies and having husbands just like our daddies.  We dream of our very own Prince Charming.  As we get older and grow into young adults we dream of beautiful homes and fulfilling careers.  We think we can change the world!  Then reality comes pouring in.  Life never seems to reach our dreams and expectations.

Prince Charming isn't so charming or maybe you've never met your Prince.  Your children are rebellious and you often wonder if you are a good Mother.  Maybe you've lost children and grieve their death.  That career you worked so hard for crumbles as the economy declines.  You realize that you and you alone can never change the world.  We've all experienced a time when life doesn't measure up to our dreams.  

It's very easy to let shattered dreams make you bitter and some even sink into depression.  Many wonder what is the use in dreaming? Your heart may be broken and in a thousand pieces as you realize you're life isn't what you dreamed.  Without God in your life that is all you are...shattered broken pieces.  However, when you come to the Lord he can put all the pieces back together again molding you into a beautiful child of God.  

Psalms 34:18 "The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit."  
Psalms 91:4 "He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler."

When we depend on God he can take our desires and give us more than we could have ever imagined.  He can give you Prince Charming.  He can change the heart of that rebellious child.  He can give you a beautiful home.  He can exceed our expectations.  He can use your life and testimony to change the world.  We can't make our own plans leaving God out and expect good things to happen.  Let God direct your life and everything will fall into place.  

Romans 8:28  "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
